Lately Kenna's favorite two activities are changing her clothes and washing her hands. She has a creative sense of fashion, and we're still working on putting clean clothes BACK into her drawers. I'm tempted to lock all her drawers, but it does keep her occupied. As for washing her hands, I find her hanging over the edge of the sink several times a day with the water running over her hands...at least she's concerned about good hygiene, LOL!
But the best trick happened Monday afternoon. I was sitting with my swollen feet and legs propped up on the couch, enjoying a good read. Kenna had been watching her Elmo potty DVD, but apparently she got bored during part of it and wandered off. She had an idea firmly fixed in her head--she had seen the phone that I brought with me to the couch in case anyone called and was a bit disgruntled that I wouldn't let her "talk." Well. She took matters into her own hands, apparently. A few minutes later the phone rang, and it was Ted. "I think Kenna just called me from your cell phone," he said. I looked into the kitchen, and sure enough, she had climbed up to get my cell phone from the counter and somehow managed to find the button to dial Ted's cell number! He said his phone rang, and when he answered it, he heard a little voice say, "Hi!" But that's all...he talked to her, but she didn't say anything else.
The kids and I sure giggled about that story for quite awhile!
